Foot Care Practitioner

To become a Foot Care Practitioner, completing the correct courses can ensure you’re learning the right knowledge for where you want to be. This is why, here at The College of Foot Health Practitioners, our Foot Care Practitioner courses allow you to cover various foot issues and create the opportunity for you to identify, evaluate, counsel on and manage.

After completing our foot care practitioner courses, you will be able to see how conditions like diabetes and obesity increase the need for adequate foot care and understand how each of these issues is becoming more common in today's society. The first step towards employment as a foot care practitioner is this.

The NHS does not offer the kind of services that FHPs do. Foot care practitioners are in high demand, and there are many options in the field to start a successful new business and follow a different career path.

What Becoming A Foot Care Practitioner Means For You

When it comes to becoming a Foot Care Practitioner, you have a choice between two basic practicing techniques. The first is working in a surgery, where your vast knowledge of foot care may be a great help. The alternative is to work as a freelancer and visit patients in their homes to do "local surgeries," often known as domiciliary visits.

Anybody launching their own foot health business needs to account for setup costs. These will vary based on your decision to operate from home, establish your own clinic, or do both. Other things you will need include a treatment chair and a trolley, in case you decide to do surgery, an autoclave, an ultrasonic cleaner, tools, prescription drugs, insurance, and more. The College of FHP has further information regarding costs when it comes to becoming a Foot Care Practitioner. While working for yourself may not be for the faint of heart or the uninterested, the benefits may be enormous.

With long waiting lists and the low level of satisfaction expressed by many patients it is clear that local authority clinics and hospital-based departments can never meet the real needs of the population in the matter of foot health. Our services are necessary. They must be safely delivered with expertise and understanding.

THE COLLEGE & IT'S AIMS

The College is in its 19th year of successfully training practitioners to support and serve the population of the UK. It is recognised that the need of the public in foot health provision cannot be adequately met by the NHS. In addition, we believe that the public should have a genuine choice of where and when they can obtain treatment and in the nature of the treatment they can access. Foot care is absolutely essential to the maintenance of good health, and is effective in averting serious illness requiring costly intervention.
